THE BASIC MYTHS ABOUT TURNING 70
You don't know what's fashionable any more – yes you do! You just keep listening to the same music, wearing the same clothes and keep your house decorated the same way – it all comes back into fashion every few years!
You're into your second childhood – not unless you count sleeping in the day and needing the toilet in the middle of the night.
You're past it! – well, at least that means you know where it is and can go back and find it again whenever you choose!
You're a grumpy old git – really? No work, free travel, people giving you their seat on crowded buses ... what's to be grumpy about?CHAPTER 2
THINGS YOU WILL NEVER NOW DO
Win Wimbledon (Even the 'veterans' are under 60 for goodness sake!).
Get a job as Tom Cruise or Angelina Jolie's stunt double.
The splits (except perhaps by accident – possibly while auditioning to be Tom Cruise or Angelina Jolie's stunt double).CHAPTER 3
YOUR LIFE WILL NOW CONSIST OF ...
Feeding the entire bird population of your neighbourhood.
Trying to find your glasses (try top of head or dangling from string round neck).
Attending exercise classes in an attempt to regain the physique you had as a lithe young 60-year-old.
